    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 16, 2020

    Daniele Di Nicuolo dazzles with art that is filled with energy and charm. The array of different and unique characters throughout Caspars upbringing are visually dynamic. The action is great and I love the expressiveness of Caspar himself as he tries to draw out the people around him emotionally and doesnt give up when presented with an obstacle. Read Full Review

    The Order is responsible for protecting a bunch of secrets. Issue # 2 makes one secret very apparent for Casper and the reader. Family matters. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Sep 16, 2020

    All in all, Seven Secrets #2 continues to add investment to this story and what promise this book has down the road. Caspar has now slipped into the lead role, and through him we are learning a lot about the structure of The Order. Though it was definitely a shocker to be hit with a twist by the end of the issue which really changes everything you thought you knew about the direction this story was taking. But that would be fairly in line for this creative team. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 15, 2020

    Seven Secrets #2 is a good issue thanks to how it has been set up playing against and with expectations. There's a give and take going on that's unseen thanks to the information we were given in the last issue. Still, there remain big question marks, especially around who Caspar is, that keep you in the dark and by extension keep the book a bit distant from readers trying to connect with its characters.

    Seven Secrets #2 develops the unique mythology Tom Taylor & Daniele Di Nicuolo have created but the narration feels oddly familiar. Read Full Review

    This all felt really... competent? Some fun moments but overall very standard. I liked Canto best, what a look.

    So this issue kind of slows down and explains the truckload of set-up and action thrown at us in Issue #1. Like a recap if you will. And as a follow-up issue, it does its job splendidly. Forgot to mention this in the first issue, but the art is fire. Di Nicuolo on pencils with Baiamonte on art makes for this vibrant, high energy art-style that fits the pacing and environment of this book. In this second issue, we get to meet Caspar, the bastard himself.

    In short, its just a recap of what happened when he was born up to the moment he found out what happened in present time. It explores more of the organization and how this world works, who works in it, etc. Tom Taylor still keeps some factors behind sheets. But what sold me on th more

    Still very exposition heavy. The story is moving a bit slow but I’m hoping it’ll ramp up in the next few issues.

    So still, we're just stuck with a bunch of exposition and world building. Unfortunately, the world isn't very interesting. This is a very slow comic and I just really hope that next issue finally has something big happen in it. I could feel Tom Taylor desperately grasping for the reader's remaining attention with that last line, but it didn't work for me. This is a very mediocre comic.
